Yahooooo!

Hi..my name is Sherry and I just bought my first Airstream. It is FABULOUS! I tried it out in the hothothot Florida Keys and it was better than I could have imagined. I have wanted an Airstream for a long long time and a series of unfortunate life events (in retrospect maybe they were actually fortunate life events!) made me realize it was "Now or Never, Baby!!" Since I am a Florida girl, I just had to buy the International Ocean Breeze. Now all of my friends want one and I sure hope they go ahead and do the deed and travel with me. Thanks for a great website..makes me feel a lot better! Hope to see you soon!

Welcome Sherry. You will definitely meet a lot of nice folks on this forum, and great resources when those little problems pop up. Looking forward to seeing you at some of the rally's around the country.

Hi Sherry! Welcome to the forums! You got yourself one sweet rig and I hope you have many years of fun with it. Post some pictures OK? I love the keys even though I was only there once. I'd like to tow my AS down there someday. Happy Travels!

Hey Sherry,

Welcome to the Forums and congrats on your new baby!

What are you pulling it with?

I have been lusting for a 23' since they came out. Maybe it's time to upgrade the 19CCD

Enjoy your new toy....it's not hard to do!!!

Talking And never look back

You have not only purchased a Airstream, it's a whole new way of life. Florida has some of the best State Parks in the country. Take a freind or two with you some time and they will also be hooked.

Hello, Welcome to Airstreaming

That's a great story. Many times tragedy begets opportunity and it sounds like you've made the most of your circumstances! Airstreams are contageous and I bet your friends give this some serious thought.

My wife and I have stayed in several of the state parks in Florida - they have all been great. We made all of our reservations through reserveamerica.com. We've always wanted to go to the Keys - it's still on our list of things to do so we're envious.

See ya down the road.

Lucius

Welcome Sherry.

Lew, if you do, you'll join the ranks of oh so many folks that started with a 19' and moved on up like "The Jeffersons"!

...present company included.

Welcome Sherry and congrats on the new Airstream. My wife and I are currently looking at a 27FB CCD Ocean Breeze, one question however. Did you get much condensation on the inside?? My plans are to do much travel in the south Florida area and this is a concern.

Thanks and Good Luck
Bill and Jean

I live in the center of Florida and go to the Keys. Condensation had never been a problem and should not be if you A/C condensate system is clean and working. This system is prone to clogging up and then you have a condensate problem in the trailer.

Sorry Sherry and back to the new you!!!

Rivet Congratulations!

Hi Sherry,

Welcome to the club. Itís been a long time since Iíve been to Florida. My one trip to the keys was just before I got my first Airstream, I was van camping then. I canít imagine a better place to start Airstreaming than Florida.

Have fun.

Vaughan

Yea Twink, it's a funny thing don't ya know.......................

I bought the 19CCD for use on the road and in the summer as a vacation residence in Hood River and love the little hut, but due to situations beyond my control (read pending divorce) it looks like I'll be full-timimg in the little beastie for the forseeable future.

While I can't pull anything larger with my current Sprinter, the new '07 3500 dually version has a 7500lb tow capacity compared with my 5000lb. I may just have to get a new van while I'm at it!!!!
